SynaptiCAD releases Linux support for entire product range

June 01, 2005 - All SynaptiCAD products now available for Linux platforms

SynaptiCAD has recently ported it’s entire line of digital design tools to the Linux operating system. All the tools share a common platform-independent graphical interface that provides users with the ability to easily move from one OS to another and share their work across different platforms. SynaptiCAD offers timing diagram editors, HDL simulators and test bench generation tools.

User demand was the key motivator for SynaptiCAD to port it’s products to the Unix platform. According to Dan Notestein, president of SynaptiCAD, “The speed of Linux on relatively low-cost x86 based hardware and the increasing availability of high quality EDA software has made it an attractive environment for digital design. For some time we have had our console-based simulation tools available on Linux since these were relatively easy to port, but the increasing demand for our GUI-based products, especially our timing diagram editing products, made it a logical next step to port these products as well.”

SynaptiCAD tools are now supported on all desktop versions of Windows, Solaris, and RedHat Linux 7.2, 8, and 9 for the i386 platform. Updated HPUX 11 support is slated for 3rd quarter of 2005.

With this release SynaptiCAD brings the following products onto the Linux platform:

TestBencher Pro: a graphical test bench generator that significantly reduces the time required to create and maintain test benches.

VeriLogger Pro: Verilog simulator using the BugHunter Pro interface for debugging.

BugHunter Pro: an interactive graphical debugging environment for VHDL and Verilog simulators.

DataSheet Pro: a timing diagram editing environment for creating professional data books and documentation.

WaveFormer Pro: includes a waveform translator that can convert data between logic analyzers, pattern generators, and simulators.

Timing Diagrammer Pro: a timing diagram editor with includes min/max timing analysis with delays, setups, and holds.

In addition to these products, SynaptiCAD provides several optional software modules  that can be added on to these products, such as the GigaWave feature for handling gigabyte size waveform files and the Waveform Comparison feature for comparing waveforms from logic analyzers and simulators for regression testing.

SynaptiCAD products are available now from EuroEDA. Additional information about SynaptiCAD and their full product range may be viewed at
